See artist Jamian Juliano Villani's beautifully strange paintings

The energetic artist fills her work with images culled from every corner of the city

Painter Jamian Juliano Villani knows all about the challenges that artists encounter when pursuing a career in New York City, having worked from her Bed-Stuy bedroom for three years, creating paintings filled with images culled from bargain books from the Strand, obscure album covers, comic-book culture and her own nightmares. It’s all paid off, though: Villani had her first solo show at Greenpoint’s Rawson Projects in 2013, and her Instagram account landed her an exhibition at JTT gallery on the Lower East Side. Projects for the Jewish Museum and Karma books are also in the works.
